Celtic lay claim to Lassad

Despite Levante having already announced Lassad Nouioui as a new signing, Celtic have suggested this afternoon that they were about to land the forward.

Levante confirmed via a posting on their official website early on Saturday morning that they had signed the striker, who was available on a free after leaving Deportivo de La Coruna when his contract expired this summer.

However, in his pre-match interview this afternoon, Celtic boss Neil Lennon spoke of anticipating the player flying in to Scotland today to complete a move to the Bhoys.

Reports in the UK, though, are siding with the claims of Juan Ignacio Martinez’ team, that the player has agreed a two-year deal to stay in Spain with them.
